In my world, there’s no such thing as too many awards or too many of the same awards. It’s a great pat on the back. I remember how the butterflies in my stomach fluttered away when I got my first Liebsters! This is now my sixth and as you can tell, I’m grinning from ear to ear and going wooohoooo!
It’s a great feeling to get some recognition, I tell ya. And, even though it may be the same award, every single award rules are always slightly different. It’s the same with Liebster which used to be given for those with less than 200 followers. In this case, that’s not mentioned. Neither is there a logo. But I decided to nick a logo of Google just so I have a visual for this post.
So the rules of acceptance are to share 11 mysterious things you may or may not already know about me. Followed by 11 more questions asked by one of my favourite Daddy Blogger, Eric. Followed by my own nominations in which I provide 11 of my own questions.
I don’t know if I can find 11 things about me to talk about which won’t put you to sleep, but I’ll give it a shot.
11 things about me
I have been obsessed with the drink Aquarius
I have to hide my Aquarius drink from my children, particularly my son or I’ll never get to drink a drop!
I know there are You Tube instruction videos on Rubic Cube
I still cannot solve the Rubic Cube
I don’t have a Rubic Cube in decades
I realised I don’t have the patience for Rubic Cube
I have double standard when it comes to patience.
I’d like my kids to puzzle over the Rubic Cube and expect them to have the patience for it – it should keep them quiet.
